Moonee Valley Friday Night Racing & Tips

Victoria’s Moonee Valley Racecourse will be home to a stellar eight-race programme this evening kicking off at 6:45pm (AEDST) with the $30,000 Mitchell Property Management Handicap (1600m).

Our tip for opening Moonee Valley event is #3 Lady Of The Lamp, Peter Moody’s speedy Fastnet Rock filly coming off a close second at this track and distance on February 4 and drawn well in barrier two.

Moonee Valley Race 4 is another quality fillies-only race on tonight’s card, the $55,000 Essendon Mazda 55 Second Challenge Heat 14 (955m) due to jump at 8:15pm (AEDST) and for the win the hot favourite #1 Umgeton is hard to go past.

The other headline event not to miss here is Race 7 – the $30,000 LF Signs & Designs Handicap (2500m) at 9:45pm (AEDST) where we are tipping #3 Montgomery to win their third straight at the track.

Canterbury Friday Night Tips & Race Programme

The Sydney racing action is top-class tonight with Canterbury ready to run an exciting seven-race Friday night programme getting underway at 7:00pm (AEDST) with the $27,000 Bowermans Recycled Office Furniture Handicap (1900m).

In Canterbury Race 1 we are tipping #4 Prince Of Essex to return to form and score an upset at good odds.

The second event on the Canterbury card is the $27,000 Bowermans.Com.Au Handicap (1250m) due to jump at 7:30pm (AEDST) and here we are sticking with favourite #4 Gai’s Choice, David Pfieffer’s General Nediym filly coming off two impressive wins in Sydney and then Queensland this year.

Sunshine Coast Race 4 – the $12,000 JPG Design & Print Colts, Geldings & Entires Class 3 Plate (1400m) at 9:07pm (AEDST) is a wide-open affair with lots of value for punters and we have our money on #5 Nero’s Fire.
